Serious injuries or wrongful deaths because of a collision, a derailment or any other type of railroad accident usually occur because of inadequate maintenance, malfunctioning equipment at crossings, or human error.
Frequently, railroad crossings may fall into a state of disrepair or be negligently designed, safety gates will malfunction and stay up even when a train is approaching. It this leads to a vehicle getting struck on a track the consequences can be catastrophic.
